Blackberry with Coconut Juice Jelly - Day 22


I really like the look and taste of this jelly. They look really girly, isn’t it? A fresh coconut here cost around $3.00 each and I can’t bring myself to pay that kind of money so I just used the can coconut juice. I didn’t expect them to taste good but they do but of course it can’t be compare with the fresh one. I guess beggar can’t be chooser, right. By the way, that is blackberries but it turns red once it hit the warm agar agar mixture. You might notice in the 1st pictures that the jelly has an odd shape. Actually one of the jellies broke into half when I was unmolding it and I just cut it off and stack the other one on top of it. Thank God I made 2 of it so there is always a back-up.




Ingredients:

400 ml coconut juice with some coconut flesh
1 tsp agar agar powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 pandan leaf
Some blackberries


1. Combined coconut juice, agar agar powder, sugar and pandan leaf. Cook over medium heat until it boils and agar agar dissolved. Continue to cook for another minute.
2. Wet the jelly moulds. Pour the mixture into the moulds and add in a few of the blackberries to each mould.
3. Let is set completely. To unmold, dip the moulds into hot water for 15 seconds, run a knife along the side of the mould. Turn the jelly out on a plate. Serve cold.

I have been searching for a agar agar recipe and I think I have found it. Love the idea of suing the coconut juice. wonder if heating it changes its flavor?

This is just beautiful.
My love for coconut is just growing because of your posts :3
Maybe it's just from my experience but agar agar tends to have be more solid than jiggly like jello.

Looks very pretty and kind of futuristic. Probably a great way to disguise eating fruits! Simon
